Getting What They Pay For

The Princeton Review -- no relation to Princeton University -- this year recognizes West Virginia University, the alma mater of Adam "Pacman" Jones, as the number one party school in the nation, but in a statement that should chill the enthusiasm of taxpayers and parents everywhere for funding their children's education, one WVU student, Stuart Sauer, says that his school doesn't deserve the award: "I think there's no way to measure that. Every school's a party school."

University President Mike Garrison responded that students are focused on"the great year we have ahead," not partying, but evidently he did not realize that the students involved may not consider those two concepts to be mutually exclusive.

UT -- that's the University of Texas when talking to people at my new home -- finished second in the ranking.
